Shamrain - The Empty Flow
This garden will never bloom, the moments that shone are far
this ocean no longer blue, conceals all beauty, drowns us in gloom
Pale ghosts in the shadows, dead faces in the water
barren spaces left behind, melt into waves
in the empty flow
everlasting stains, a quiet solitude
tension wanes within, i am as empty as the ocean
the promises i made for you, part from the seams too soon
pipe-dreams torn apart, slowly pass on
vanish for good
the world is tranquil now, close your weary eyes
let sleep wash away this desolate reality
tell you a fairy tale, tell realities apart
this is our haven, within this quiet room
you’ll be safe until the dreams escape
the dreams always escape...
am i still alive?"
"...shades of blue swallowed you
now i am sinking as you were
my voice was mute as i called you
you left my heart empty
to touch the clouds, to feel warmth again
your aura still paints the sky and unveils your beauty"
